We Reap what we Sow.

Ps Melvyn's sermon yesterday was a very encouraging one for me.

God simply kept on telling me "Yes, do not give up. For at the proper time you WILL reap a harvest".

I knew that was His word for my ministry since two years back. I really thank God that i did not give up sowing seeds of love, grace and encouragement all these while. It is definitely not easy to sow and give continually to people; naturally i feel rejected and disappointed at times. That is why it is so important for us to always go to the Lord to receive His love again and again, to top us up with His love so that we can continue giving.

And truly all that i could give, come from God. Thank You for sustaining me!

Last night at home when i was doing my reflection on the sermon, i started sobbing in gratitude.

You know last time when i heard the verse "Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy" (Psalm 126:5), my heart would ache so much, so painful, especially at 'sow in tears'.

That was when my heart was so broken about my gals not wanting to commit to the Lord or the family, and one or two of them even outrightly sinned against Him.

But today, hearing it filled my heart with joy. Cos God has ministered to me in the past hurts in ministry. Cos' i know God is already bringing me towards the stage of reaping in joy!

Indeed today i have a group of WARRIOR PRINCESSES with me.

Your testimonies recently had caused my heart leap so excitedly like never before. After all mentioned in the previous post happened, God is saying He is still not done! Yesterday we heard of yet another divine appointment for Amanda's classmates to ask her about church and being a Christian.

I hope you are all encouraged, and also realise the importance of Colossians 4:5-6:
Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

Let's continue to go deep in the Lord, look far in the vision, and ask big in faith! He IS still enlarging our tent!
